Date February 9, 2018 14:20

When two geniuses meet, something immense and beautiful should become the result of their collaboration. That’s what actually happened in the result of Quincy Jones and Michael Jackson’s work.

Quincy Jones and Michael Jackson met and decided to start working together during the shooting of The Wiz movie. Michael asked Quincy if he knew any good producers he could work with, and in this way, he became a new producer of the singer.

Their cooperation was more than successful. Their first record, Off the Wall, sold about 20 million copies. And it was only the beginning. The next record, Thriller, sold 110 copies and became the highest-selling album of all time. The last album they both worked on was Bad - 45 million copies.

Quincy says Jackson stole a lot of songs

Being a genius is hard, people are always trying to accuse you of something. However, sometimes, the truth might be sad.

Quincy Jones, for example, says that Michael Jackson stole a lot of songs, and “State of Independence” and Billie Jean, in particular. He says there are written proofs of that.

There was also a case when Michael should have given 10% of the song to Greg Phillinganes for writing the c section of the song Don’t Stop ’Til You Get Enough.” He didn’t do it, though.

Greedy, man. Greedy. “Don’t Stop ’Til You Get Enough” — Greg Phillinganes wrote the c section, Michael should’ve given him 10 percent of the song. Wouldn’t do it.

Quincy criticizes The Beatles

The musical producer didn’t have a favorable attitude towards the Beatles as well. The first time he heard them he was utterly disgusted. He said they were the worst musicians in the world. And discussing their musical skills was something he preferred not to do. He just said:

They were no-playing mother******s. Paul was the worst bass player I ever heard. And Ringo? Don’t even talk about it.

What else can we say? Tastes differ!
